All over ---> New channel lineups coming May 5.

These include 5 new "public interest" channels mandated by the FCC:

- Washington, D.C.-based Howard University, owner of urban AC WHUR-FM (96.3) and WHUT-TV, will create two channels. One is described as "Music and talk programming for the African-American community" and the other is music and talk programming from Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

- Eventus-National Latino Broadcasting will also produce two channels - one of Spanish-language talk, the other of Spanish music.

- WorldBand Media, which already operates in some radio markets by leasing HD Radio multicast space, will produce a Spanish-language talk channel.

- KTV Radio will originate a Korean-language music and talk channel.

- Salt Lake City-based BYU, owner of "Classic 89" KBYU-FM, Provo and KBYU-TV, will originate a channel of "music and talk programming for the Mormon community."
